    I have been lurking around here for years and finally decided to join. We currently own two 1998 SLK 230s, a later model SLK 350, and a custom, lifted 1998 ML320. We have accomplished major work on all of them, with one of the '98 SLKs being prepped for Champ Car racing the other a daily driver...

    Hello, I've read about 50 threads of tailgate locking issues but can't seem to find this issue exactly. 99 ml430. The rear door actuator is manually functional and plunger is intact. Central locking doesn't operate the tailgate, UNLESS, I remove fuse f42 and then it does work but it is out...

    My '98 ML320 started doing this two days ago, it's stranded at my daughter's work. I checked a few things and think it's the immobilizer but have questions. First, no red LED on the radio when I turn the key to #2 position (or when cranking). Does that tell me right there it for sure has to do...

    I have an intermittent problem with my ML320, 2008. Paid two mechanics for diagnostic, but they couldn’t identify the cause of the problem, only to suggest spending $10,000 on general upgrades. The problem is a loud grinding sound, like gravel in a blender, when starting to go at stoplights...

    I have a 2001 Mercedes ML430. I replace the cooling fan, the thermostat, the water pump, radiator, the cooling fan relay and the temperature sensor. Cooling fan still does not cut on even when I turn on the AC. I don't want to take it to the dealership just yet because they overcharge and...

    Hey everyone thanks for your attention! I own an ML from 2003, and I've been having some trouble lately The first problem is - I'm driving around 60km/h (35MPH) or sometimes even slower and suddenly I hear and feel something locking up. I've assumed the brakes are the ones to lock up. When the...

    Looking for a solid example of an M-class between 2000-2005 MY. Model isn't important, can be a 320/430/500. Ideally something that's in good condition with mileage below 150k, although I would consider higher mileage with documented provenance (records). No beaters or projects, this needs to be...

    I bought a used 2009 ML320 and love it, except when it doesn't want to accelerate... it's happened a few times while driving and simply turning the car off and back on seems to be enough to reset it (no CEL) so it sounds like the common issue with the swirl motor. I picked up some resistors to...

    🛠🔧 I have a 2001 ML320 (this is the 4th ML I've had ) I know alot about the issues but this one I am way lost. My tire felt like it was gna fly off and so I replaced the axle bc they told me that was the issue . It's still driving scary it feels like it gets disconnected from something . I jerk...

    My 2011 ML 320 is overheating. I changed the gasket and the cylinder, yet the problem persist. Any suggestion please? Someone mentioned changing the ENGINE BLOCK, is that right?

    I recently bought a 2002 ML320 but the rear bumper is damaged do you think the bumper from the 2000 can fit.

    Help, I bought this car about 6 month ago and it has been perfect. Helping a friend move the tailgate was accidentally left open for about a week before I noticed (we had a huge storm) the battery was dead. Had battery charged, now it will start but does not stay running. Called the closest...

I have charged the battery and now it starts up and purrs like a kitten but will only idle. foot off the throttle to wide open it varys maybe 100...

    I acquired a used W163 ML320 back in June. It wouldn't move under its own power (started and ran, tranny seemed unresponsive). I got out the dipstick I had for our W210 E320 and the tranny was practically dry. Filled it up and it drove and shifted okay. Hours after getting it home, I noticed...

    I've 'broken' my 2009 ML320 Bluetec (OM642 Diesel) with 124K miles and am hoping for ideas to 'unbreak it' from smart folks (smarter than I am): Problem: the ML starts fine / engine rev's up OK, but...when put into drive (or reverse) and the engine has a load, the powertrain 'surges' (pulses...

    I have a 2009 ML320 Bluetec diesel with 64,000 miles. The top off coolant sensor was activated. I purchased the purple Zerex G48 antifreeze for it. When I looked in the reservoir, it was full of green antifreeze. I'm not going to mix the two. However, should I drain and flush the system and then...

    Hi everyone! I’ve had some starting problems with my 1998 ML320 which I alleviated by cleaning the key cylinder with CRC QD cleaner, but before that I used a wire to jump the K8 starter relay to get it running. A few days after, I started the car but when I turned it off and took out the key...

    Hello I have a huge oil leak in my 2007 Mercedes ML320 CDI Turbo Diesel. The oil is leaking from the driver side bell housing. I notice that the leak increases when I apply gas. It is about 2 drips per second and I am trying to figure out where it is coming from. Before all this started I had...
